by Sarah Flower Adams

"Nearer, my God, to Thee" is a 19th century Christian hymn based loosely on Genesis 28:11-19, the story of Jacob's dream.

In the United Kingdom, the hymn is usually associated with the 1861 hymn tune Horbury by John Bacchus Dykes. In the rest of the world, the hymn is usually sung to the 1856 tune Bethany by Lowell Mason. British Methodists prefer the tune Propior Deo, written by Arthur Sullivan in 1872.
